Windows 7: What other OS have you used in the past (not windows)?

Windows 7/10 64 bit

As I've been around computers, in one capacity or another, since "smoke signals" (1962) I've seen a lot of different Operating Systems. In my day job I worked with proprietary OS', IBM mainframes (IBM calls it the "Supervisor") from 360's to 3031's, XENIX, Novell 3.12 (which was basically DOS), and finally Micrososft from the old DOS days to present.

In my personal PC's I started out with a Commodore VIC 20 and then to MS DOS and up to present systems.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Other than Microsoft (everything since DOS), I'm a Linux guy. I've tried all of the major distros, but my favorites are Debian based. Currently, in a dual boot setup with Win 7, I have Ubuntu Lucid at the office, and Debian Squeeze at home.
